Tasting Notes Domaine de Chevalier 1986

89

Tasted at 'The Wheatsheaf' in Combe Hay, the Domaine de Chevalier 1986 was a initially a little 'creaky' and dry upon first pouring. However, given a good slug into the glass and this turns out to be a pleasurable, old school, almost rustic Graves that is probably nearing the end of its drinking plateau. It has a dry, tertiary, undergrowth scented bouquet: autumnal, with dry leaves and very little fruit. The palate is well balanced with dry tannins, a little lean in the mid-palate but still fresh and quite soft and charming towards the finish. Do not approach if you are seeking fruit, but do if you require wine with your rabbit hot pot like myself. Drink now. Tasted April 2012.

This wine has evolved less evenly than I hoped. The attractive nose of roasted earth, herbs, minerals, and red and black fruits is pleasant. In the mouth, the wine reveals unresolved, astringent tannin. Although short in the finish, it is a very good, possibly excellent Domaine de Chevalier that should continue to evolve, and, hopefully, fatten up over the next decade. Anticipated maturity: Now-2012. Last tasted 11/95
